    My moms 2 tear old easter egger, head of the flock started this sound this morning and is on and off. Its a loud honking/wheezing noise. I dont think shes sick. It sounds more like shes injured her windpipe ir something. Any suggestions? I took a video but im having a hard time uploading it. I opened her mouth and looked down as far as i could but it looked clear

    I used a nebulizer with Baytril water in it. She did fine. That's my experience.

    I will try again in the morning. My non tech savy self cant seem to figure it out. She sounds normal tonight though. Im fairly certain that she bruised her throat and its swelling that caused the noise. Mom said she swallowed a rather large peice of bread this morning and the noise started soon after

    Yes! That is exactly how she sounded. So weird. Shes fine this morning. I guess she just choked on something and passed it or else inhaled something she shouldn't have. Ill watch her to be sure she doesnt get an infection or anything in her lungs.
